System handles disappearing/page not updating

Hey everybody, here's a problem I've had for a while, but right now it's driving me utterly crazy: Whenever I move a staff upward, causing it to jump on the previous page, there is a bug causing it to be on both pages at the same time, hiding the staff handle on the new page and making any other edi...

Re: Finale crashes upon inserting measure stack

Thanks everyone for their replies. Here's the update: So it turns out that it DOES work, I tried it out at different spots in the score, in page and in scroll view, inserting measure stacks or inserting a new staff system with x measures. BUT: It takes about a minute each time. For about 50 seconds,...

Finale crashes upon inserting measure stack

Dear all, I'm encountering what appears to be an old problem that I can nevertheless not find a viable solution for in the older threats. When trying to insert a new measure stack at the beginning of a 40 poages orchestral score, Finale always crashes. It's the first time I experience this. The solu...

Re: Slow performance in simple entry

Thanks a bunch, N Grossingink, the Automatic Music Spacing hint did the job. Obviously the issue isn't completely gone, but at least I can delete a rest in under 3 seconds :D Scrolling, no matter which tool is activated, is still painfully slow, but I don't think this is something to be remedied or ...

Re: Slow performance in simple entry

Hey,

thanks for your responses! I'm in scroll view, but page view doesn't seem to make a difference. If this is a Mac issue, then this is frustrating-as-hell news :x :x :evil: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: But I appreciate the delivery ;)

Any other hints?

Thanks everyone !

Re: Slow performance in simple entry

Hello miker and motet,

thanks a lot for your quick replies, I'll definitely try that out, though the automatic update layout thing hasn't worked at first glance. But I'll give it another try.

Any other ideas?

Thx so much !!

Slow performance in simple entry

Hey there, I'm encountering an old problem, Finale getting significantly slower the larger the file gets, e.g. between 1-3 seconds to delete a rest or add an augmentation dot in an almost empty measure. Unfortunately breaking it down to several files is not an option, since it s a one movement orche...

Re: Weird behavior in one-line staves

Hello Harald, Thanks so much, this is amazing. So I've copied and pasted your code into a new script and run it, but it doesn't seem to change the phenomenon. Have I done something wrong? I must say, I don't have any experience with FinaleScript, so it's possible (=probable) that I did something wro...

Re: Weird behavior in one-line staves

Thanks motet for taking the time to replicate the situation. "Glad" you experienced the same problem – it is indeed super weird. I just had the experience that mere scrolling changed the cursor behavior, so it works for a couple of measures, then not anymore. But it's still frustrating, time-consumi...

Re: Weird behavior in one-line staves

Thanks so much motet for your quick reply! :) Yes, so what I noticed was that it doesn't do that in all instances... Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't... But from many years of experience, I know this problem and probably managed to live with it because it doesn't do that all the time... :lol:...

Weird behavior in one-line staves

Dear all, For years now I've been noticing a weird behavior with one-line staves, i.e. a very difficult placement of expressions and smart-shapes. When a regular one-line staff staff style is applied, the cursor doesn't show it's regular shape but has an additional arrow pointing towards the end of ...

Re: Straight flags?

Matt, I suggest that you submit a feature request to MakeMusic. Generally new features are prioritized after importance, and after how many users the feature will benefit. This new feature with “flip-able straight flags” may not be available already in the next Finale version, but getting it on Mak...

Re: Straight flags?

Hey,

thanks a bunch for the reply, motet.

I wasn't thinking of switching the side of the stem but of the flag, leaving the stem on the proper side, which I'd say is rather frequent in lots of contemporary music notation.

Any other hints out there?

Thx

Matt

Re: Straight flags?

Hello motet, Thanks for your quick reply. The example you provided is what I did by changing the settings in the document options, which is what I think you suggest. But what I'd like to do is to change the side of the flag for example if I have a triplet with quarter + eight note, that the flag poi...

Re: Straight flags?

Hello everyone, I see this is an old post, but I'm trying my luck again with the same issue. I've figured out how to implement the straight flags and understood from the example given here that changing the side on which the flag is positioned has been done so far by designing a custom stem. For sev...

Hey motet, thanks for your reply. I did the same thing and you're right, it works. Yes, there is something weird about the file, I also have one big bug in the sax part (that I cut out); although the file I uploaded is a new file where I just c&p'd some bars. I need the tape part for coordination si...

Sorry I just realized I was being sloppy with adapting the sample file (the original one was too big to attach, even partly). Here's it again (in the earlier file I forgot to change the part defintion. The section I'm unable to put multi-measure rests is between D and F. Sorry for the confusion and ...
